* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' broke out of the Christian programming ghetto- it is considered a genuinely funny and entertaining kids show, that kids actually enjoy watching, not just for showing during Sunday School.

* While Creator/{{Disney}} usually [[TropeMaker built the market for animation]] (sound cartoons with ''Steamboat Willie'', feature-length animation with ''Snow White'', computer-animated feature films by distributing ''Toy Story''), the [[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation Disney Reinassance]] certainly broke many ghettos: animated movies were now huge moneymakers, critical darlings worthy of Best Picture nods, and with considerable star power in their voice acting.

** Incidentally, Limbaugh ''himself'' is an (successful) example, taking political-commentary-based radio out of the droning doldrums and into the controversial and popular format it is today.[[note]]The three above, along with fringe conservative Michael Savage, plus two Creator/{{NPR}} talk programs, are the second-thru-seventh most listened to radio shows (NPR taking the 4 & 5 spots), according to TheOtherWiki, Summer 2011, with only Radio/AmericanTop40 surpassing them.[[/note]] Granted, the revocation of The Fairness Doctrine made it possible, but there still had to be a leader [[FollowTheLeader for everyone to follow]].

** George Stevens' ''Film/{{Shane}}'', as well as ''Film/HighNoon'', became the second yardstick for westerns as a serious genre. Both movies tried to create a more psychological approach to the genre which attracted it a broader audience than the usual BMovie westerns.

** While TV has seen some improvement, Western animated films still tend to be categorized as children's works, with a side of AllAnimationIsDisney. Very few "adult" Western animated films have been produced, and most of those are spin-offs of TV series. At least, that was the case before ''Film/SausageParty'' became an unexpected success in 2016.

* Who would want to be seen reading a fantasy novel in public? Grow up, you hopeless {{nerd}}. ''Literature/HarryPotter'' and ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' don't seem to count, even before they were republished with sombre covers to hide your shame. Before that there was ''Literature/{{Gormenghast}}'' and The Elric Saga.
